Recently, I developed a fascination with instrumental Celtic music. And so, I have downloaded all the possible Celtic music I could get: The Corrs instrumentals, Chrono Cross soundtracks, and other Irish music. Celtic music is really good, melodic, and pleasing to the ears because of the unique combination of fiddle, tin whistle, drums, and more instruments. And these characteristics mainly contribute to the mood of the song, they can be very cheerful or very somber, though usually Celtic music are more cheerful because of the heightened playfulness and colors of the melodies.

This is my favorite instrumental song from the Corrs, entitled “Lough Erin Shore”. Video by orionisprime.

Chrono Cross soundtracks are also good and Celtic-inspired. My favorite song is “Arni Village (Home)”. Every time I hear it, my heart aches as if I needed to reflect onto something. Maybe I should play this song every time I need to contemplate about Life. Video by illmatic28.

I usually listen to instrumental music while studying, especially when I need greater concentration (reading, understanding, writing a paper) because I am easily distracted to the lyrics of the other songs.

Speaking of instrumentals, the next genre I am planning to download are palabunibunyan and rondalla music.


Now that there are two confirmed cases of A H1N1 flu in our school, classes were suspended for 10 days! I’m not even sure if I should celebrate because we’ve been missing a lot of precious time for our lessons and requirements due to several suspensions on typhoons and health advisories. I hope all of us can cope with the health and time crisis.

After the announcement of class suspension, I immediately packed up my things and went home. For some reason, I don’t feel the usual vacation spirit of cheerfulness. Maybe because the timing is odd and the teachers would surely give us a lot of requirements to do while at home.  But I was wrong!  They decided to remove the Humanities Week and First Periodic Exam so the time would be maximized. I’m okay without the Periodic Exam,  on second thought,  I’d love it actually (less stress for now), though I can imagine how jam-packed the Second Periodic Exam would be. But without Humanities Week, it would be disappointing not to see it for the last time.

Anyway let’s sweep aside the school stuff and move on. I’m planning to enjoy this two week class suspension but the same time do requirements, read advance lessons and review for the upcoming UPCAT exam. But for now I’m playing Chrono Cross because I miss it so much! And just like before, I chose Guile  though I recruited Glenn this time.

In the Zelbess Ship and I'm Lynx O:

Best Party I can get so far.

I hope it would be an enjoyable and fruitful vacation.

This song is a soundtrack from Final Fantasy X-2. There are two versions of this: English and Japanese, but of course I prefer the Japanese, also because it’s more emotional. Additionally, the Japanese version of the music video is simpler.

Here are the lyrics:

Kimi no kotoba wa
Yume no yasashisa ka na?
Uso o zenbu ooikakushiteru
Zurui yo ne

Tabi tatsu kimi ni
Tsumetai senaka misete
Kiite ita yo—hitori tatakau no?
Zurui yo ne

“Kaette kuru kara”
Oikoshite yuku kimi no koe
Ijihatte, tsuyoi furi
Toki o modoshite: sakeba yokatta?
Ikanaide to namida koboshitara?
Ima wa dekiru, donna koto mo

Kikoeteru, sen no kotoba o?
Mienai kimi no senaka ni okuru yo
Tsubasa ni kaete

Kiko eteru, sen no kotoba o?
Tsukareta kimi no senaka ni yorisoi

Ienakatta, sen no kotoba o
La la la la…
Kimi no senaka ni okuru yo
Tsubasa ni kaete

Kikoeteru, sen no kotoba o?
La la la la…
Kimi no senaka ni yorisoi
La la la la la….
